The Department of Transportation (DoTr) and the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines will inaugurate the new Passenger Terminal Building of the Maasin Airport on Monday.
Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade will lead the inauguration with DOTr Undersecretary for Aviation and Airports Capt. Manuel Antonio Tamayo, and CAAP Director General Capt. Jim Sydiongco, said a report in Manila Standard.
The airport’s new Passenger Terminal Building aims to upgrade the airport from a community airport to a standard Principal Class 2 airport, so that it can meet increasing air transport demands.
